Throughout history, foie gras has been viewed as symbol of wealth and power, earning a reputation for being “fancy food for fancy people.” The ingredient’s high price tag makes it a particular target for animal rights activists — fine dining at the expense of animal suffering — despite the fact that geese being raised for foie are treated, on average, significantly better than animals raised for more traditional meat needs. But monetary and ethical setbacks aside, foie gras remains as popular as ever. Watch as Eater Investigates dives into its historical and cultural significance, based off a popular Eater feature from Wyatt Williams entitled, “A Wild Goose Chase.”
